Could we just add the skip-write-register-if-already-started change in
exynos4_mct_frc_start() uncondtionally? Perhaps it could be in a
separate patch too? I was probably being over-cautious when I did it
conditionally on mct_local_idx. Doing it uncondtionally would make it
easier to remove the global variable.

On my system the FRC is actually started long before Linux, and I assume
it's similar on other chips.

Yes, you're right. The case of the FRC not being running when the A5
starts up is only ever hit in our simulation environment where we are
able to start Linux on the A5 directly, without having to go via the
A53.

The A5 is normally started from Linux on the A53 (using the remoteproc
framework). This is long after exynos4_mct_frc_start() has been called
on the A53.
